The first race got underway yesterday in 18-20 knots, and later built to 25 with some gusts to 30 knots, which was about the same as the boat speed going downwind for those daring enough to put up spinnakers! With seas building, the race committee prudently cancelled the remaining races scheduled for the day as quite a few sailors were having trouble righting their boats in these heavy conditions.
Racing is scheduled to resume today, 29 March.
